TOADS. Philip Larkin's stunningly truthful poem of a middle class man in a job he hates contemplating what would happen if he resigned to follow his dreams. A piece that touches a nerve in many readers, "Toads" uses the central metaphor of the "toad work" to describe an all too familiar feeling for all too many. Yet why is it that this man cannot leave his job? What is the other "toad" that squats in him and prevents him leaving? And why has Larkin allowed himself to become the man who can narrate this poem? Followed later by "Toads Revisited" these are two essential poems for understanding the world view of one of the most popular of twentieth century English poets. Please LIKE and SUBSCRIBE.
